Four Corners parking lot reopens after being torn up for more than four months because of burst pipe

The parking lot for CVS and the other shops at Four Corners has fully reopened after being torn up for more than four months to make repairs because a water pipe burst.

The Village of Pelham Manor announced the reopening in an email Tuesday.

A sinkhole formed in the lot on June 17 because a water line feeding into the CVS fire-sprinkler system ruptured. A large portion of the parking area, with a gaping hole in it so work could be done, was closed while land owner Friedland Properties brought in contractors during the four-and-half-month period.

In August, store owners reported continuing steep declines in business because of the limited access available to customers.

Village officials and the Pelham Chamber of Commerce lobbied Friedland to speed up the work during the period.

“There are still project close-out items to be finalized, but the parking lot has been certified by an engineer for safe use,” said the village. “Restoration took time. However, we are confident a thorough and comprehensive repair was carried out.”
